Welcome to the new Goldfrapp forum. Enjoy your new home! X
  • I own more than a hundred music DVDs, and now I've started to add to them a few music Blu-ray discs.  There are just five, so far:

    2 Kylie
    2 Girls Aloud
    1 Katzenjammer

    I expect that other people on here have embryonic music Blu-ray collections.  I wonder what you've managed to find in this relatively new format.

    Nothing from Goldie and the Frappers, of course.  Given their record on releasing DVDs, I think it would be unwise to hold one's breath until there's a Goldfrapp Blu-ray disc.

  • Here's a closer look at the Katzenjammer Blu-ray disc.

    This has only been released in Germany.  I ordered it from Amazon.de.

  • Wow, 100+ music DVD/Blu-rays, Peter... quite a collection. :-)

    I've just counted mine: 21... those all being DVDs.

    I guess promo-videos made before about 2004 will almost all be non-HD (?) and so would not lend themselves to the blu-ray format. And when did they start making them in wide-screen... mid 90s?

    Similar thing with live-concert recordings? ie most filmed before 2000 would be standard definition, I think. But then there will be some that were recorded on high-quality film. Certainly there are some movies from the 60s and even earlier which have had excellent transfers to HD / Blu-ray.

  • I wonder whether Dreeke's list is complete.  It doesn't include Girls Aloud's Out of Control live.  (Maybe the Girls Aloud concert I play most often.)

    I'd find it difficult to list all of my music DVDs because they're not all shelved together.  For one thing, some of them are in CD-sized cases and (for the sake of convenience) are shelved with my CDs.  One such is actually a double DVD of Madonna's promo videos (47 of them between the two discs).

    Dreeke has a lot of items I don't, but I have many that Dreeke lacks.  To take Kylie, I have her two Blu-ray discs, the three DVDs Dreeke lists, 8 other DVDs in DVD-size packaging and at least 5 more DVDs on my CD shelves.  At least 16 Kylie DVDs in total.  (And I have another on order.)  (Crumbs!)  I seem to be a bit of a Kylie fan.

    It's fair to say that I like watching both live concert footage and promo videos.
  • Once I've finished with Jane, I'm scheduling a Kylie intervention for you, P.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • Ooh!  Kylie intervention that sounds fun!
  • Just so we're on the same page: There will be no Kylie playing during the event.
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • No Kylie playing?????

    As Kylie herself put it: "What's the use of living if you don't want to dance?"
  • Pet said:

    I've got that one on Blu-Ray only.
    This is the DVD-list ;)

    I'm currently in the process of putting my entire music-collection on Discogs.com
    That's why it wasn't that hard for me to produce those lists.

    Finished all the regular CD-albums, Promo's, Blu-Rays and DVDs.
    Still have to complete entering my vinyls, cd-singles and compilation-albums....

  • ^ I thought it was very strange if you didn't have that concert.

    It's the only concert I've bought three times.  I bought the DVD when it first appeared.  Then I bought the special edition DVD+CD (which was released a little later).  Finally (at least, I assume it's finally) I bought the Blu-ray disc when I bought my first Blu-ray player.

    I think the special edition DVD+CD was only available for a short time and may now be a collector's item.  (It's not listed at all on Amazon.co.uk [even as unavailable, which suggests that it's never been available from Amazon], nor is it now listed on Universal Music's site [which is where I bought it].)  The CD is a good bonus, enabling me to load most of the concert on to my iPod.  (The entire concert is too long to fit on to a CD, so it's somewhat edited down in that format.)  The special edition also has a bigger and better booklet than either the regular DVD or the Blu-ray disc.
  • Something that makes music Blu-ray discs worthwhile is the pop up menus.  These don't seem of much use when watching a film.  But, when one wishes to watch selected songs from a concert, the pop up menus enable one to do so without stopping the music.  Excellent!

Howdy, Stranger!
